[laughter] >> for, your honor. an extraordinary set of evidentiary requirements in effect puts the dog on trial in any suppression hearing in which the defendant chooses to challenge the reliability of the dog. i think most fundamentally the problem with the court of appeals and the supreme court's decision is that it misconceives what this court's cases conceive of the probable cause requirement. converting probable cause as a subs

's not functionally different than using an airplane to look into the house, like in florida v. reilly. i think this case is a lot like that. in florida v. reilly, the officers used a helicopter to fly over the house, and they saw exposed marijuana. here you're using the drug detection law to smell to door of marijuana that is being pumped out of the house into the street, and the people in the house know that, and we know they know that because mothballs were present. they're a masking agent. people don't have a legitimate expectation of privacy. this court has held knowingly exposed to the public, that's what the court said in florida v. reilly. and i think here one way to resolve it is to say people who live in grow houses with a distinct odor of marijuana who know that is being pumped out in the street because of the air-conditioning they need to run the grow houses, there's no invasion in their expectation of privacy when either a man or a dog when lawfully present on the property uses their god-given senses to detect that. so if i could reserve -- >> thank you, counsel. >> thank you. >> m

, the same scenario for the popular vote in the national vote happens for ohio and florida so the lgbt support for obama is bigger in ohio and florida band is winning margins. so you can credibly argue that vote mattered a lot and if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida you start to think about a very different election. then i looked at also, what if romney and obama had more or less the -- of the lgbt vote was 7-6 obama and 7-2 romney and quite frankly it has been about that. it has been roughly 3-1. that is the highest it's been but quite frankly it's been high all through. but what if they split it or romney just got a little bit more? if romney had 151% of the lgbt vote he would have won ohio, florida and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. so in ohio and florida, albeit to do was win a little over one third of the lgbt vote to win this big. so while i don't think that suggests that suddenly in the way that we are not talking about like immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy, i don't

, florida, indiana, georgia, massachusetts, and south carolina, i say look out. i've been pleased to get to know tom well over the years as well as his wife, terry lynn, and their wonderful family. i don't think i've ever met anybody who has done a better job building an enterprise than he has. given what he had when he came to the university in 1997, and then look at it today. he's built an athletic department that boasts a budget in the top 20 in the country, championship football and basketball teams, record-setting men's and women's basketball attendance at our new downtown arena, and enormous success for all the other school sports that may not get as much attention but are just as vital to the students and the community in louisville. and he's done all this while increasing academic success for student athletes. are a word 21 of 23 cardinal athletic teams protkaougsing a 3 -- producing a 3.0 or higher grade point average in the most recently completed semester. it's a truly extraordinary accomplishment. i'm proud of my friend tom jurge and what he's done and i want to extend to him

that you are here at the risk of being redundant. what we wanted to was that people who read florida affairs rather than the chronicle of higher education and journals like that. what they have done the two of them, helped with the report. it is there and the idea is not to resolve everything but to put the issue center stage. let me turn to them for the starch and basically say let's deal with the basic question which is, is very close link between -- between k-12 education and the state of american national security. >> thank you very much. the council on foreign relations organization, but a lot of years, was prepared to look at what i will call the domestic sources of american strength because without the strength at home we don't lead abroad. this was insightful account will to do this. i was looking forward to the opportunity to work with joel who i admire so much for what he did in new york city and what he continues to do on education reform and it was a great force and i would make three brief points about this link we all found between national security and education reform

at the state level and then they had, florida for instance, locally at 700 approved ses providers. which by the way, it's not a good position for us to being in that market either. but then districts would say we have hordes of ses providers come into their district and they had no control. so i think in close whenever i think south goa has that same, they kept ses but once against districts can pick the five providers they want to work with. and so i think we're seeing more and more, more and more districts now having more control in ses, if ses is still around in the air. editing is probably what we're going to move to, the state to continue to provide -- will then move to the districts that they can approve the providers that they work with as well. or have more input into what happened in the program because that wasn't happening before. that was a big criticism. >> we are just about out -- i do want to, as we look at a second obama term, if there was one change in federal policy that would help us both kind of cat the ability of the private sector to serve communities well, and to h

. it was remarkable that it was five days after the fact before we even knew the results in florida. 21st century in the greatest democracy in the world, voting shouldn't be this much of a burden. and in many ways, when you have those kind of extraordinary lines, particularly if you're working, what we in effect have created is a 21st century poll tax. and those of us in the south who have a history where poll taxes were used to restrict voters, what you, in effect, have by having these extensive lines, if you are -- work on an hourly basis or can only get off a bit of time and -- you can't afford to wait three and four and five hours in line to vote. this legislation, the fair, accurate, secure and timely voting act of 2012, the so-called fast act, creates a competitive grant program to encourage states to aggressively pursue election reforms. it would provide incentives for states like virginia to invest in practices and technology designed to expedite voting at the polls and simplify voter registration. the fast voting act addresses this issue in a responsible way. it doesn't add new mandates.
